It has always been Al-Anon’s approach to carry a clear and simple message about our program of recovery — that is: to let people know what we are, what we do, and how they can come into contact with us. Our public outreach is based on the following that promote unity and clarity within the fellowship as well as awareness and hope outside the fellowship.
Al-Anon Information For The Media
Al-Anon/Alateen press releases, public service announcements and Media Kit are available to provide the media with background information on our fellowship. If you would like to interview Al-Anon/Alateen members in your community, please contact our Public Outreach Coordinator. Thank you for helping us carry the Al-Anon message to families and friends of alcoholics.

Statement on Anonymity There may be some who are not familiar with our traditions of personal anonymity at the public level. We respectfully ask that no Al-Anon, Alateen, or AA member be identified by full name or picture in published or broadcast reports, including those on the Internet. The assurance of anonymity is essential to our efforts to help families and friends of alcoholics, so that they know Al-Anon and Alateen meetings are safe, confidential places to get help. We gratefully appreciate the cooperation of the media in this matter.
Please print these posters, add your phone number or meeting information – use them whatever way works to plant the seeds of Al-Anon/ Alateen!
